Blogs and Libel suits

This morning's National Post has an article in it about the increase in libel suits coming from comments on Websites. While blogs are all about personal opinion, it strikes me that all of us have to be cautious about what we say about others - we are in effect "publishing" each and every time that we blog. If in publishing, we are negative about others - we potentially open ourselves up to a lawsuit. Enjoy blogging but be cautious about what you say - once it is on the Internet anyone can read it!!
